Eniola, 27, met Temzie, 28, at a friend’s wedding in Houston. Four years later it was their turn to say “I do” on October 22, 2011, at The Bell Towers on 34th in Houston. Share their love!
Eniola’s side-swept updo is both romantic and timeless.
For her something blue, Eniola chose a special message for the bottom of her shoes. (One of our favorite trends among brides.)
The day would not have been complete without their his and hers wedding bling. Temzie went above and beyond to be sure he was able to give Eniola (who’s particular about her style) the exact ring she’d always dreamed of wearing on her left hand.
We just love how the hot pink accent color pops when paired with Temzie’s sharp grey suit.
Nervous but excited bride-to-be Eniola gets help from her hands-on bridesmaids just before her traditional ceremony is about to begin.
Eniola looks stunning in this Winnie Couture strapless trumpet gown. It fits her like a glove. “When I tried it on, I knew my husband would love it.”
“We picked every detail of the wedding together,” says Eniola. “We wanted this to be a TENI (a name she created for them because her nickname is Eni and his is Temi) creation.”
This laid back bridal party portrait belongs in a frame. We love to see the bridal party having as much fun as the bride and groom — everyone had an amazing time, and it shows.
From here, all we can see is purple and pink perfection on those decadent stairs. Eniola did an excellent job of selecting bridesmaids gowns that flattered all the ladies’ figures. What a lovely bunch of beauties.
“I am very lucky to have Temilolu as my husband,” says Eniola. “He is very caring, honest, and more especially loves me for me.”
Eniola’s cascading bouquet is a real scene-stealer. It’s a traditional style of bouquet most popular with princesses and other modern day royal brides.
Eniola is escorted down the aisle by her proud father, who can’t seem to take his eyes of his baby girl.
“We both attended the same church, and we knew we’d want to get married there,” Eniola tells us. “Even before I got engaged, I had already envisioned what our special day would be like.”

“Our cakes was six tiers,” says Eniola. “I didn’t want it to be any color other than white. ”http://edetokon.com/" target=_new>Edet Okon designed tit — isn’t it beautiful?"
Pink and purple mood lighting with a damask gobo light helped to set the mood for romance during the couple’s sit-down dinner reception. Over 500 guests came to help the couple celebrate their union.

Eniola and Temzie chose a romantic color palette to match the amazing love they feel in their hearts for one another. Doesn’t it just come right through their photos? This looks like it was a first dance to be remembered.
The gorgeous young couple is a picture of happiness as they prepare to cut into their enormous cake. (We hope you saved us some.)
Eniola and Temzie paid tons of attention to detail when it came to planning their special day. Check out their lovely monogrammed cupcakes. Yum!
Temzie and his beaming new bride sit like royalty at their sweetheart table during their reception party.
Overwhelmed by the sea of smiling faces that cheered them on throughout the evening, Eniola and Temzie stood as the room toasted to their happiness. “Guests flew from all over the world to help share in our joy,” says Eniola.
Temzie busts a move on the dance floor as his new wife, Eniola, and their bridal party cheer them on. To ensure that the party wouldn’t stop, until they said do, they couple hired both a live band and a deejay.
Before he completed the customary search for Eniola’s garter belt, the groom paused for a few push ups, and an awesome photo opp. You can tell these two are best friends and lovers.
Join us in wishing Eniola and Temzie ceaseless joy.
In keeping with Nigerian wedding traditions, Eniola and Temzie planned two wedding ceremonies. Their traditional ceremony was held on Thursday and a “white wedding” was held on Saturday. They looked amazing on both days.
